What is better with crackers than Orange marmalade spread? You will love this sweet spread for entertaining whether tailgating or evening at home. Layered orange marmalade, cream cheese, Italian cheese, goat cheese and mandarin oranges in a pretty jar for easy serving. Toasted almonds garnish the top of the spread. Serve with crostini, assorted crackers or basic saltines for a sweet & savory flavor. Everyone will enjoy this spread for snacking. I used this spread for a tailgating party.

How to Make Orange Marmalade Spread

In small bowl, mix cream cheese and goat cheese until smooth.  Add grated Italian mix cheese. Stir to mix until creamy.  If you need to add a little bit of cream to help it cream or sour cream/yogurt that will be ok to do. Not to much though. 
Have other ingredients available for layering in your dish or jar. 
 

Layering the Spread

 
Place 1 cup orange marmalade in bottom of glass crock or container then layer the remaining ingredients in the following order:
 
Cream cheese/goat cheese mixture
Mandarin oranges
Cream  cheese mixture
Top with remaining 1 cup orange marmalade
Sprinkle with chopped almonds.
 
Serve with crackers of choice, see Souffle’ cracker recipe

 

Super easy spread to make and it is really delicious. If you want to change the color scheme if you are tailgating, select fruit jam in your team colors and other fruits to make a statement.  For example,  if your team colors are blue and gold, use blueberry jam, same cheese mix, dried blueberries or fresh ones and top with toasted coconut with edible gold glitter.
